The Wii Remote, MotionPlus add-on and Nunchuk controller takes second, third and fourth positions respectively.

New Super Mario Bros was the bestselling game of the year at No.5, followed by a trio of Nintendo titles in the form of Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit.

The Xbox 360 version of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the only non-Nintendo item in the Top 10, followed by Mario Kart Wii.
